Gold Star Award!

The "Paper Sweeties" Design Team has a challenge sketch going on throughout the month of September entitled Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #11, with the theme using a STAR!  I was inspired to enter as its theme, a STAR, fits my card to a "tee." Go over to their website and check it out along with the Paper Sweeties store.  The challenge link is:

I made my STAR card for my son's Gold Star Club. He started this club over five years ago this month with participants from among his online gamers. He presents challenges for any of his gamer friends to enter and give the correct answer to the puzzle. 

The very first challenge was to name the voice speaking, which came from a vintage computer game that he had played as a young boy.  No one had any guesses for over six months, and then one day, two members, who didn't know each other and lived in different states, presented their hypothesis. Both were correct, which was amazing that no one could guess the title of the game correctly for over six months and then two were successful on the very same day within hours of one another. These winners were entered as members of the Gold Star Club. Further challenges have been offered throughout the ensuing years, but the first person to correctly guess the first challenge holds the Gold Star Club crown, and she will receive this card honoring the five-year anniversary of her win! My son and I both hope she enjoys her card!
